Lunch is the place to share your opinions about almost anything. You can review people, places, products, media (photos, video, and audio), creative work (original writing and artwork), and even events and ideas. We give you the tools to express your likes, loves and loathes in a thoughtful review and in turn, connect you to people who share your interests.

In your day to day, you consume and experience a wide range of different things, from the sneakers you jog in and the video game you played last night, to the news show you listen to on the way to work. Lunch is the place to share your thoughts and experiences about the world around you. When choosing a review topic, pick something that strikes your passion or something you'd like to learn more about. Your reviews help Lunch determine who and what kind of content you'll like. The more you review, the better Lunch can connect you to the right people and information.

A great Lunch review is helpful to the community and inspires curiosity and exploration of a topic. An inspiring review can be many things – we know everyone is different and what's important to you might be less important to others and vice versa. The most universal qualities that make a review stand out is how helpful it is in illuminating the topic of interest as well as how pleasurable it is to read. In short, a great Lunch review should be:
Comprehensive and informative, full of useful information
Include details you'd want to read if you were looking for information on a topic you knew little or nothing about. Include caveats that a typical product description would miss and helpful tips you'd want a friend to know.
Insightful and thought–provoking, bringing outside knowledge to the table
Give insight from your experience with similar topics, with examples illustrating what makes this one better, worse, or different. Include outside information or unique insight you haven't seen anywhere else. Give details you'd want to read too.
Engaging, entertaining, funny, and a blast to read
It's your opinion, so have a good time exploring your passions. Explain why you liked or disliked the data point, with anecdotes and examples. Or try an unusual point of view on a well known idea or product. Your review is the place to let your personality shine.
Well organized, makes the points clearly and without confusion
A useful review is easy to read with a logical progression of ideas. Avoid stream of consciousness writing. Instead, collect your thoughts into a focused conclusion. For a more balanced review, highlight the negative and positive aspects with bullet points.
Feature photos, videos, and audio to help support your opinion.
Add clear, high resolution photos, videos, or audio files to support your opinion and give the community a better understanding of the data point. Whether you're a veteran reviewer or newbie just starting out, the more you review, the more skilled and comfortable you'll be at expressing yourself. And the better reviews you'll write.
